. documents show embassador stevens sent repeated cable to washington about security fears, even on september 1-11, the day he and three others were killed. why did the white house wait so long? what impact will the new documents have in the final debate? >> they're going to impact the final result. certainly it will be part of the final debate. look, now -- the president wants to play semantics on this, whether you put a word here or word there. fundamentally the mistake this administration made was trying to pretend and tell the world that terrorism was quelled in north africa and across the dangerous spots of the world. it's rampant and reared its ugly head and the administration is trying to hide that. when poor embassador stevens sent cables saying it's real, it's here, they shoved him under the table. shame on the president and shame on the state department. >> can we expect mitt romney to be aggressive about the benghazi it attack and ask about the video? >> i don't know what he's going to ask him but i will say he was kind of shocked when the president lied about having refe

information on the ground. >> joining us, former u.s. embassador to the united nations, john bolton. good morning. >> good morning. >> we have this -- the reporting by jennifer griffin there were three calls on the ground in benghazi for help. she broke the story. the order came back, stand down. don't go. what's your reaction? >> and request for outside assistance denied. they put out a statement friday we never said no to requests for help. the white house is trying to portray the president as saying do whatever it takes. but in the defense department there's more contradiction, panetta says the african command agreed no reinforcement should be sent to benghazi. that's not what general ham is reported to have said to the congressman. i think the picture we have of the administration is a lot of fingers pointing different directions and no clear pictures as to what actually happened. i think the only place you can trace this to is the white house. in any administration i've served in, it would be inconceivable to me that as this attack began and unfolded, the president wasn't in the cent

house has yet to fully explain why embassador rice went on television to say it was as a result of a demonstration over that video, the obama campaign says no we were not trying to deflect from the idea of al-qaeda gaining strength. >>> i think that's nonsense. obviously this was a tragic event and the president called it an act of terror, not once but several times, and asked for and ordered an investigation to get to the bottom of what happened, why it happened and to bring those who committed this act of terror to justice. >> now, when you look at practical experience, it could be difficult for governor romney because he has less practical foreign policy experience than the president. what he will try to do, according to campaign sources, to overcome that it bring it back to the economy stating in order to have a strong foreign policy, in order to have a strong military, you have to have a strong economy and we just don't have one right now. >>> john roberts, in florida. thank you, john. >>> tomorrow the candidates will make their final pitch to undecided voters in the final debat

, do you have a specific question? caller: let's see. i did not understand why embassador stevens was allowed -- ambassador stevens was allowed to go into the country with a situation like it was and not have the security. what he was doing in benghazi is impossible. host: we will leave it there. guest: this is what our diplomats do. the operate in the field with our host nation partners in trying to advance relationships with those countries. this happens on a global basis, on a daily basis. this is not something that is unusual. in an area like libya, it is a much higher risk. the ambassador knew that going into the country that it was a high risk environment. he knew to develop a relationship with libya, he was not going to be able to do that surrounded by a large entourage of personal security individuals. he visited that on a personal level. he had to get out of tripoli and needed to get with the people to best advance our relationship. at the end of the day, that put in at greater risk. from what i understand, he was well aware of that risk. that is what makes our diplomatic
